Meet Our Team

The goal of our practice is to provide excellent, affordable dental & orthodontic treatment to all people in Southern Arizona. We are committed to treating every patient as if they were our own family

Dr. Kurt Kacer

My philosophy is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a friendly, caring and fun environment. Being an orthodontist is the best job in the world! The office provides a valuable service in an upbeat setting that makes people feel better about themselves and allows them to enjoy better dental health. Providing the positive change a great smile creates is very satisfying.

The hands-on training that I received in my years of school has enabled me to provide effective and accurate treatment to my patients. At the completion of my orthodontic training, I was awarded the Clinical Excellence Award. In addition, I furthered my knowledge by attending continuing education courses to keep up on the latest advancements in my field.

Dr. Caroline Kacer

I was raised in Tucson, Arizona most of my life. I attended the University of Arizona and received my Bachelors in Science in the area of Physiology with a minor in chemistry. My pursuit to follow in my father’s footsteps as an oral surgeon led me to continue my career by attending dental school at Case Western Reserve University where I met my husband and bought my first real winter coat and boots. I had a passion of helping people and being part of a community that helps people smile. After finishing my DMD I attended Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY to complete my residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. It was here that I gained my knowledge in facial trauma and specialty in wisdom teeth extraction and implants. During all the long hours in school I was still able to squeeze in some yoga classes and some amazing Broadway shows.

I participate in TuNidito and I am creating a nonprofit program, “DEED4DEED”, that focuses on a pay-it-forward concept to help people receive dental needs by giving back to others.
Now that I am back in Tucson I continue to develop my practice as a yogi. I play in the garden with my daughter, Grace, and my husband, Kurt. I love to cook and enjoy an occasional volleyball game. I enjoy my work and love the interactions and new relationships I make with my patients daily. If I am not on the ice taking care of one of our Tucson Roadrunners Hockey players I am at the University taking in a football game.

Dr. Michael Santasiere

After helping hundreds of different patients over the years, I have seen how tooth and gum problems can affect people’s lives in so many ways. It can affect our sense of well-being and our overall health. It can also affect our confidence and how we interact with others. In my career as a dentist, I have advanced my skill set through continued education to allow myself to provide my patients with the best in comprehensive care. It is my goal to provide each patient with an enjoyable and comfortable experience to help them in any way. I strive to understand what my patients’ goals are and to work with them to find the best solution.

I’m excited to join this outstanding team dedicated to providing exceptional dental care.

Twila Garcia

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Twila Garcia and I have been in the dental field since 1998. I started off as a dental assistant through the Red Cross Program. I graduated from Dental Hygiene School in 2003 and then again in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. I have a deep passion for my career, and educating my patients is always my top priority.

I am married and have three incredible children. My husband’s job has taken us to a number of exotic locations. We have lived in Japan, Panama, Nigeria, Texas, Kansas and now Arizona. He is a Lt. Colonel in The United States Air Force and has proudly served for 29 years.



Born and raised in Western Washington, my family moved to Tucson in 2000. Shortly after moving to Arizona, I attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Still, I found myself back in Tucson after receiving my bachelor’s degree. At the time, I was bent on living in cold places and moved to Minnesota to get my degree in dental hygiene. I survived two Minnesota winters and came back to Tucson in 2010 with a new appreciation for the desert and ready to take the dental world by storm. 

My dental hygiene experience includes periodontics and general dentistry. My favorite aspect of dentistry is the variety of people I meet. I enjoy spending time with friends and family in my downtime and trying local restaurants. I am looking forward to meeting you at DentalPros!





I’ve been practicing for 16+ years. Fathers of two kids 18 and 21. Love playing golf and soccer in my spare time.

I was born in Hermosillo, Mexico, and I’ve been in Tucson for 25 years. I received my degree in Dental Hygiene from Pima Community College in 2012. I love being a part of the excellent team at DentalPros. I particularly enjoy providing dental care to entire families, getting to know each one of them, and seeing their progress. My primary goal is for the patient to have the best possible and stress-free experience. I’m still trying to convince myself that I enjoy hiking. I am married and have three handsome boys.
